One thing I've done which I haven't in a while was paint with oils.
Using them I came to realize I prefer acrylic when it comes to painting detail. I think these couple of cocks show that ; p
BUT its much more fun to move paint around with oil. plus, they give off richer color with less effort. in that case i made this abstract? piece which is now hanging in my brother's kitchen.
I think i'll stick to illustrations..
